Get a sneak peek at the Capital Fringe Festival


There will be more than 120 shows in this year’s Capital Fringe Festival, which will settle in at Fort Fringe (above) July 7-24. (By Michael S. Williamson - The Washington Post)
There are only three more weeks until the kickoff of this year’s Fringe Festival, and if you just can’t wait to plunk down in an un-air-conditioned warehouse space to watch one actor perform every role in “Macbeth,” in the nude, while hurtling through the air — well, neither can we.

Organizers will officially announce the 120-plus shows slated for the fest Monday, when tickets will also go on sale, but we’re giving you the first chance to browse through this year’s Fringe offerings today. Just take a look at some of the titles: “Who’s Your Baghdaddy or How I Started the Iraq War,” “The Magical Marriage Computer and Other Plays” — and what will surely become a classic piece of arthouse theater, “I Like Nuts! (The Musical).”

Tickets for the festival, which runs July 7-24, are $17, and the button you’re required to have (but only need to buy once) is $7. The tickets go on sale at 9 a.m. Monday through the Capital Fringe site and by phone at 866-811-4111.

Now that you’ve got a couple of extra days to figure out which shows you’ll hit, let us know in the comments about which shows you're excited to see.
